One thought on “The Books

  1. Hello! I just started reading your VA Vol. 1 book and am finding it very interesting. I wonder if you planned to provide an Italian translation of the book. I am also curious to know how would you consider to take one of your live Seminars in Italy next spring.
    Thank you for your attention. I look forward to reading from you soon.
    Kindest Regards,
